Challenger 2 side armor seems too strong
Needs Review, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Currently there is no shoulder fired AT capable of penetrating its side armor effectively.

CUP PG-7VR round.
Hull/turret sides:
If you load ACE, no damage will be inflicted to any of its parts.
If you do not load ACE, you will see minimal damage (3~4% per round) to the gun.

Engine side armor:
If you load ACE, the engine will start smoking and likely start burning. At this point the crew will dismount
If you do not load ACE, you will see minimal damage about 37% damage to the engine part.

Hull/Turret front:
If you load ACE, no damage will be inflicted to any of its parts.
If you do not load ACE, you will see minimal damage (3~4% per round) to the gun.
Shooting at the lower glacis causes no damage.
Odd case of engine damage when shooting at the drivers view port.

The same behavior happens for the Challenger 1 from CWR:UK

Not sure if this desirable or not.
